Now you too can journey on the study abroad program of a lifetime to Ecuador’s Galápagos Islands—and even spend time exploring and writing about its famous finches, iguanas and tortoises just as Darwin did.

Located 620 miles from the South American coast, this volcanically active archipelago is one of the earth’s natural treasures—home to plant and animal species not found anywhere else.

Amid the beauty of San Cristobal, Floreana, Santa Cruz and Isabela, you’ll experience the nexus of science and nature’s beauty.

You’ll get real-life experience in the field in this living laboratory. Explore and write about the animals, the environment and anything else that inspires you.
